People First Language

My friend was trying to explain to Brother 1 what "People First Language" is (ex. it's correct to say a child with autism, not an autistic child).

Brother 1: Ok, I get it. 'Cause the child has autism, you say "a child with autism". You wouldn't say autistic child, 'cause that would mean that the autism has child disease.
